“Where the past and present meet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2011

Avana Point is reached down a side road towards Avana marina accommodation, opposite the Ngatangiia CICC church. Historically the harbour has been used by early Polynesian settlers, European sea-voyagers and present day fishing vessels and yachts seeking safer anchorage during storms. The point offers visitors a close up view of the Pacific ocean beyond the reefline and inner sheltered lagoon waters. The tidal rips and turbulence can be viewed from this spot. Great spot to see the vaka-paddling champs during November whose course sprints takes contestants from Avarua harbour to Avana and return.
